We took family pics at sunset!! It was beautiful!!! The pier in the background is gorgeous and the cleanliness was great. It does cost to go out on the pier so we passed on that but enjoyed the lovely sunset.

Every summer when we go to the beach, we always make it a goal to go to the Fishing Pier at night. At nighttime when you walk down the pier, the hotels are all lit up at night and it truly is beautiful.

Nighttime pier walks are awesome! Everything looks so different at night, and its cooler. Thanks for visiting Gulf State Park Pier.

The cost was $3 a person to get in. We did see several people catching fish and several pelicans just walking on the pier. Nice walk on the pier. Lots of free parking
